Unlocking Venetian Craft

Venice has been a city of artisans and high craftsmanship since the medieval times and remains a time capsule of the rich tradition of a variety of crafts with their own storied histories, with techniques being passed down from generation to generation. 

Though its famous and influential craft guilds may be things of the past, its artisanal soul still thrives, and modern artisans are continuing the tradition and innovating on the well trodden practices that earned the city its fascinating legacy. The Gritti Palace, a hotel steeped in its own history and lore owes much to Venice's artisans, with much of its art and artefacts having been restored by local artisans, wishes to champion these current guardians of ancient crafts starting with six who continue to contribute to Venice's artisanal story
